Various committees review the SOT and Supported Awards.
The Awards Committee reviews applications for most of the awards whose recipients are recognized at the Awards Ceremony at the SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo. Nominations for awards administered by the Awards Committee must be submitted using the Online Award Nomination Form by a primary and secondary nominator who are Full Members of SOT. The supporting documentation must indicate the candidate’s achievements in toxicology and is critical in the review of each application. Visit the individual award pages to find the individual award requirements and to access the Online Award Nomination Form, when applicable.
The Board of Publications selects the Toxicological Sciences Paper of the Year, and the Education Committee, Committee on Diversity Initiatives, Postdoctoral Assembly, and Graduate Student Leadership Committee select recipients of specific awards as determined by SOT Council.
Applications for SOT and Supported Awards for students and postdoctoral scholars will be reviewed by the appropriate committee, and application procedures are specific for each award. Student and postdoctoral awards also are available through Regional Chapters, Specialty Sections, and Special Interest Groups. A candidate may apply for any award for which he or she is eligible and may receive multiple awards whether sponsored by Regional Chapters, Special Interest Groups, or Specialty Sections. Unless otherwise stated in the individual award description, only one SOT-administered award may be presented to one individual. Policies related to travel awards are determined by the provider (SOT, Regional Chapter, Specialty Section, or Special Interest Group).
